Tour description provided by Viator

The Royal BC Museum is one of the finest in Canada and a must-see attraction during your visit to Victoria. With ever-changing and evolving exhibits and galleries, this museum is perfect for the entire family. Explore British Columbia's natural and human artifacts in the museum's permanent galleries, plus prestigious traveling galleries.

Established in 1886, the Royal BC Museum has collected and preserved British Columbia's most significant artifacts and specimens. Once housed in a single room, today this world-class museum is located in a multi-story, modern building right in the heart of Victoria's Inner Harbor. The museum received its 'royal' title from Queen Elizabeth II in 1987.

The permanent galleries of the Royal BC Museum focus on natural and human histories. The First Peoples Gallery gives you a dramatic glimpse into the lives of the native settlers before and after the arrival of the Europeans. See, hear and smell the past as you travel through 200 years of British Columbia's amazing history.

In the Natural History Gallery, you'll take a journey across time and see how British Columbia's natural environment has changed over thousands of years. Learn about the mammoths and giant bison that roamed this area during the ice age, and the animals of today, such as the iconic grizzly bear, sea lions and blue herons.

From May 17 through September 16, 'Dinosaurs: Ancient Fossils, New Discoveries' is visiting the Royal BC museum. From June 1 to September 3, the much anticipated 'Queen Elizabeth II by Cecil Beaton' will be featured.
